      Thanks for all of the replies! I have myself a nice heavy duty DeWalt angle grinder, so it sounds like that will be primary tool when working. After reading all of the replies it seems like many people utilize their chop saws but more so their portabands. I feel like it would be a lot easier to cut perfect 45 degree angles with a chop saw rather than using the portaband, however I have no idea. Is it practical to achieve cut clean and accurate angles with the portaband?
      Just don't limit it to "portaband": get a real horizontal bandsaw with a work vise and adjustments, and it's probably the most accurate, square cut you can get. You can get one from Harbor Freight, TSC, or whatever that are pretty good units for less than a Milwaukee or Dewalt portable bandsaw.

      I use one of these almost exclusively besides the plasma cutter: my chopsaw and portaband gather dust..
